Just got my e-mail today about being a new beta tester...

So what's included in your Beta Starter Kit?
* 12 months of high-speed gaming starting at the end of the Beta, plus free play during the Beta -- so you'll play for nothing until the official launch on November 15, 2002.
* Xbox Communicator headset and module
* The online-only version of NFL™ Fever 2003, available for play only during the Beta - plus the online-only versions of Whacked! and MotoGP* in October.
* Bragging rights? We told you from the very beginning that you'd get them. Well, here they are. So not only will you be able to boast about actually playing Live, you'll be able to brag about actually helping build it.
All this for only $49.95! That's about what you'd pay for just one game.
Thanks again for participating in the Beta program - now get in the game.
